XR6T - Damaged Dash

Does anybody know how to fix / or get a new replacement dash for XR6T. Damaged by previous owner drilling and glueing a phone holder to dash.

Been quoted $1,000 for new dash fitted. (Local Ford dealer)

Any suggestions ??

No idea mate, though i would have thought a whole new dash would be worth more than that?

There are places that specialise in dash repairs- I had an EB that was an ambulance with radio holes and I found a place in the yellow pages that applied a colour fill and matching texture. Better than the holes!

Re: XR6T - Damaged Dash

A lot of dealers get someone to plastic weld and match the holes- maybe talk to a dealer to see how they go about fixing it??

Re: XR6T - Damaged Dash

Where on the dash are you talking about?

If it is on the piece about the central air vents there is a good way of hiding it.

Re: XR6T - Damaged Dash

I saw an advertisment at Autobarn where the dash piece above the vents is replaced with the one that holds the oval analog clock from a Ghia. But instead of the clock there is an oval turbo boost gauge fitted.

Re: XR6T - Damaged Dash

I'll reply again as it seems my attachment didnt work.

If the holes are above the central vents you could always install on of these
